M' sia to proscribe Encyclopaedia Britannica ?

According to Encyclopædia Britannica, "Allah is the standard Arabic word for 'God' and is used by Arab Christians". So, should we believe and trust Encyclopaedia Britannica or PM Abdullah's Deputy Internal Security Minister Johari Baharum on the normal and legitimate usage of the Arabic word الله ? Will the government of Malaysia proscribe or censor Encyclopaedia Britannica under the 1984 Printing Presses and Publications Act (PPPA) on the ground that it "confuses" Malaysians ? By the way, James dan sekeluarganya ingin mengucapkan Selamat Hari Natal kepada masyarakat pengikut-pengikut Yesus Kristus atau Kristian yang berpendidikan serta berbahasa Malaysia dan Indonesia.

Ilah is the generic Arabic word for "God".

The Publication Control and Quranic Text Division of the Internal Security Ministy is full of narrow-minded fools...
